Pigments & Dispersions for Energy Curable Inkjet Inks
Abstract:Surface-treated pigments are described. Surface treatment allows for ease of disperse-ability of pigments into monomers that are commonly utilized in energy-curable inkjet inks. The resulting pigment dispersions have low viscosity and high pigment loading. Inks made from these dispersions have properties of small particle size, high filter rates, low viscosity and high chroma. The surface-treated pigments facilitate excellent stability of ink viscosity and filterability after accelerated oven-aging. Surface treatments have a chemical similarity but are optimized for each pigment. The range covers carbon black, phthalocyanine blue, arylide yellow, nickel azo yellow, and quinacridone magenta.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
